It's another blow to Raider Nation, as one of the most popular sports bars for the "Silver and Black" may go out of business because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

"It’s really bad," said Jerry Wu, who lives in the neighborhood.

Wu said Ricky's has been home base for Raider Nation for decades. "I hear them all the time and it doesn’t bother me," Wu said. "This is kind of like the second home to it."

This is just the most recent small business that may go out of business in the pandemic.

"It’s a shame," said Jack Wolford, who lives in San Leandro. "I think it’s a very sad thing that this has affected the economy so bad it’s putting people out of business."

Loyal patrons have started a GoFundMe page, with a goal of raising $100,000 dollars.
